Saturday Morning Group Ride
Our Most Popular Group Ride!
This ride is usually 2 to 3 hours long and is usually followed by a visit to a Main St coffee shop. Speed will vary according to season, race schedule and who shows up. If enough members are present at the start, the ride will be divided into several separate groups which may ride different routes. See links on the right for a description of the speed/distances for each group. Please choose a group that is right for your capability and level of fitness. If in doubt ask a ride leader
We attempt to have all groups led by a ride leader with weekend routes published ahead of time
Meet at the Riverwalk Commons parking lot (Doug Duncan Drive), north of Timothy Street, Newmarket.
Time summer: 1st Saturday in April to Thanksgiving weekend - 8:30 am
Time winter: The 1st Saturday AFTER Thanksgiving to last Saturday in March - 9:30 am
Note: Ride leaders and routes are only planned for May 4 to Sept 29. Rides taking place outside of these dates are self-organized.
Winter/Spring Group Rides:
During our winter season “winter bikes” should be used. Since weather may take a nasty turn, we try to use lower gears and may go on dirt roads. Accordingly your bike needs to be suitable, including installed fenders and lights. An adapted road bike, cyclocross bike or mountain bike would all be suitable.
